The Southern California Clean Vehicle Technology EXPO
(EXPO) is hosted by the South Coast Air Quality Management District
(AQMD) and supported by many other state organizations interested in improving air quality
and decreasing emissions within California
Among the supporting organizations are:
In recent years, the emissions from mobile sources have been identified as the source of over 75 percent of southern California’s air pollution
. The EXPO was created to facilitate the interaction between the end user and the policy makers, in the hopes that quicker and more effective solutions could be discussed and implemented. In that vein, the EXPO utilizes a format that maximizes interaction between Southern California’s construction and trucking fleets, port terminal operators, alternative/clean fuel vehicle and infrastructure technology providers, funding agencies, and other industry experts to interact and share information on grants, tax credits, policies and regulations.
Known as the “one of the few venues available for public and private fleets to interact with all three pieces of the puzzle: regulatory agencies, funding sources and technology providers”, the EXPO opens its doors every October and showcases the latest and cleanest technologies available on the market, provides concise and clear breakdowns of the regulations coming down the pipeline, as well as providing an abundance of information about how fleets can take advantage of the millions of dollars available in grants, tax incentives and through private funding organizations.
The Southern California Clean Vehicle Technology EXPO is produced by Santa Monica based environmental consulting firm, Gladstein, Neandross & Associates
